CIABA is a 501-C5 non profit organization dedicated to honoring the Cottage Alpaca Fiber Industry. We are a group of farms whose members are from across the country. We are united together in a mission to clearly demonstrate that raising alpacas is a green and sustainable resource for the North American farmer. We value the use of all natural fibers in addition to alpaca fiber. It is CIABA's intention for the members throughout the regions to focus on, promote, educate and hold fiber events such as Fiber Arts Festivals and local fairs as well as participation in fiber trade shows. These events may include animals, and will honor those alpacas who demonstrate qualities within the fleece that will enhance a fiber end product.
